I try to keep the blog up as up to date as possible with my skincare routine, so here is the current lineup (as of July 2023!) I tend to focus on glow and hydration during the day and then at night I pull out the big guns with the more active ingredients.
Current Skincare Routine
Morning (think 7/7:30am):
This is pre workout, I just splash my face with cold water, and then apply a healthy dose of whatever moisturizer (nothing too fancy as this won’t be on the skin too long). Right now I’m using Pharrell’s moisturizer, it is nice but nothing special (I received a PR mailer for it).
Morning Part 2 (think 9:30 or so, post workout):
I work out at 8:15 and when I get home I will shower. I will do a gentle cleanser in the shower, and when I get out, I pat my skin dry. Then I will use the Dr. Dennis Gross LED eye mask for 3 minutes. Afterwards, I do his peel pad. I used to do these at night but find I like daytime better as a) the post shower routine works well and b) it creates a nice smooth canvas for makeup. While I wait the 2 minutes for the peel pad to work, I apply body moisturizers (Bum Bum Cream!). After that I use Rhode’s glazing milk (a hydrating toner), peptide glazing fluid, and bio restore cream. I am really loving this line (I was surprised, thought I was too old haha) but the products are great and give you that super hydrated, “glazed donut” look. They are pretty well priced too. Of course, SPF after. Usually Unseen Sunscreen.
I love a good double cleanse. I am loving Farmacy’s limited edition strawberry shortcake Green Clean cleanser (it smells so good) to start, and then the same brand’s gentle cleanser. Then, it’s just P50 (I use 1970), the U Beauty Eye Cream, and Augustinus Bader’s Rich Cream.
